First weekend open for the season! Burgers were great, try the Putz! Staff was very friendly and accommodating, and if you're a fan of the movie, it's a must-stop!

We had friends that got married in the second floor banquet hall. The food was delicious, the bartenders were friendly and quick, and they also did double duty clearing tables. It was a great place to have a small reception. No dance was held, but it looked as though you could fit a do or small band up there. Didn't... More

Atmosphere was good. The TV's play Grumpy Old Men. Oldie but goody. Great view of the river. Food was good. Love the small town feel

Lovely atmosphere, super view over the Mississippi. Nice food - I had a very nicely spiced beef soup. Great service. Featured in the films ‘Grumpy Old Men’ and ‘Grumpier Old Men’

We were on our way back from Iowa traveling back to Wisconsin and decided to stop and grab a bite to eat. After reading some of the reviews we settled on Slippery's and went in with an open mind. One review stated that service was slow and to us that was perfect because it would give us time to stretch... More

Food only fair on any of our visits. Service and atmosphere not great. Only real draw is the view of the Mississippi River. Much of seating indoors is cheap plastic lawn furniture.

Stopped for dinner during our stay here. It was toward the end of their season, so no tap beer. Waitress was VERY good and made sure we were taken care of. My husband had the baked chicken special and I had poblano chicken sandwich with baked beans as a side. I was pleasantly surprised how great the food was. The... More

We stopped here during our tour of Wabasha, which we found to be a very charming little town. This was at the end of the River Walk and we needed something to drink. We went in for a beer and sat at the bar. Usually bar tenders are friendly with a smile on their face, but this woman didn't even... More
